Join Robert Rodriguez & Angela Sealana along with special guest JPII San Antonio Visit Project Manager Robert Aguirre as they re-visit and relive the 1987 visit of Pope John Paul II to the Alamo City.
During this program not only will we review the historic visit of John Paul – known as the Pilgrim Pope – to San Antonio, but we will also:
- Take an intimate look at the only visit by a Pope to San Antonio
- Share news about our first Pilgrimage to Poland, Vienna & Prague
- Talk about the Papacy and legacy of Pope John Paul II
Jewel for the Journey:
This land is a crossroads, standing at the border of two great nations, and experiencing both the enrichment and the complications which arise from this circumstance. You are thus a symbol and a kind of laboratory testing America’s commitment to her founding moral principles and human values.
– St. Pope John Paul II (excerpt from homily – Mass for the faithful of San Antonio, Sunday, September 13, 1987)
